Local MP mentions Town’s fundraising bike rides
Word of the 'Pedal for Pounds' bike ride has spread as far as Westminster as Colne Valley MP Jason McCartney, Town supporter and P4P veteran, discussed the Club’s charity cycling event during a debate in Westminster Hall!
Whilst discussing Yorkshire’s bid to host the Grand Depart of the Tour de France bike ride, due to be held in 2014, Jason praised the club for its efforts in holding the annual bike rides which have raised over half a million pounds for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance charity and HTAFC Academy since 2009.
He commented; “My area has booming cycling participation, helped in no small way by the series of 'Pedal for Pounds' charity bike rides organised by Huddersfield Town Football Club.
“Last year, I joined 168 charity cyclists in raising £200,000 for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance and the Huddersfield Town youth academy, as we cycled the 300 miles from Huddersfield to Brighton over three days.
“This year, even more cyclists took on the challenge and cycled from Yeovil back to Huddersfield.”
Over 140 fans are currently signed up to the Pink Link Pedal for Pounds 4: Tour of Yorkshire, which will start in Huddersfield on Wednesday 1 May 2013.
Cyclists will take a circular route around God’s own county to Hull, Scarborough, Harrogate and back to Huddersfield in time for the Club’s last home league fixture v Barnsley on Saturday 4 May 2013.
